Kind-hearted tenants based at a West Norfolk business hub have come together to bring some Christmas joy to those in need.

Around 26 tenants based at the King’s Lynn Innovation Centre (KLIC), in Nar Ouse Way, have been collecting gifts for two causes based in the town – the Purfleet Trust and the Winter Night Shelter.

West Norfolk Mayor Nick Daubney was among guests who attended a special event, which saw the Christmas presents handed over to charity representatives.

Organiser Charlotte Baines, enterprise support assistant for KLIC, said: “We decided to donate to the mayor’s two charities this year. All the tenants have kindly donated quite a lot, it’s been quite overwhelming.

“It was nice for the tenants to find out more about what each charities does.”

Mr Daubney said: “The causes do amazing work, in particular the Purfleet Trust in getting people back into homes and making a future for themselves. Christmas brings its own pressures and some people do need a bit of support at this time.

“The people of King’s Lynn have been amazing, very generous. The tenants’ efforts at KLIC will make a difference to lots of people this Christmas.”
